The four-month-old stray was hoping that the kids he approached would give him food. Instead, they almost killed him.

One day, a gang of kids was playing in an empty construction yard in Istanbul, Turkey.

A hungry stray puppy approached them. He could smell food and was desperate. Instead of feeding the dog, the kids decided to torment him.

They lifted him up, put him in a box and attempted to drown him in some glue that they had found.

Luckily, some passersby heard the dog barking as he was drowning. These people were able to scare the kids off. The dog was still alive but stuck to the box on one side.

They rushed him to a local rescue organization.

At He’Art of Rescue, the puppy initially tried to hide in a corner from the vets. But the dried glue meant that he could barely move.

The glue was cutting off the dog’s circulation. It was now as hard as cement. So the vets rushed to shave the glue off.

After many hours, the glue had been thoroughly sheared from every part of the dog.

Despite the vets’ best efforts, the puppy had to endure a lot of pain during this procedure. Much of his skin was red raw after the shaving was finished.

The vets were worried about the dog. How much glue had he ingested, they wondered. So they monitored him closely for a day. During that day, the dog was barely moving.

Luckily, eventually, the dog started to perk up. It appeared that the dog had managed to only ingest a tiny about of glue.

So the rescuers named the dog Pascal and were determined to show him that humans could be kind.

Over the next few days, the dog began to perk up.

Soon, he had made friends with another dog in the center.

In a couple of months, Pascal was completely unrecognizable. This once timid animal had become friendly. His fur had also started to grow back.

And eventually, a kind-hearted family took the puppy in. Pascal took a while to build up trust with his new owners.

But now he has an amazing life. He often gets to go to the beach and has all the love and attention he needs.

Many of the comments are from people who wish harm upon the kids who tortured the dog. But of course, the parents of the kids are the ones who should be the most ashamed.

Every parent needs to teach their children to treat animals with decency, especially dogs. Really, they are responsible for this puppy almost dying in a terrible way.
